Agriculture plays a prominent role in San Diego, holding significant economic, cultural, ecological, and historic value. As our climate and land-use priorities shift, these agricultural lands are increasingly threatened by the climate impacts of extreme temperatures, more variable precipitation and drought, and wildfire. Despite these challenges, agricultural lands that utilize sustainable and climate-smart practices, hold significant potential to offset our carbon impact.
